Census homeless stats tell the same old story
The recently released ABS Census data shows an 11% increase in homelessness since 2011. The data reveals there has been an 8.3% increase in the number of females who are experiencing homelessness, and a 23% increase in Victorians aged 55+.
It is no surprise to the community housing sector that we need more social and affordable housing.
